Gaining Ranks Quicky

In order to gain ranks quickly, you must play opponents of the same rank you are, similar to the arcade version. When defeating AI opponents of the same rank as your character it usually only requires 3 to 5 wins to get a promotion. After your fight has ended in Arcade Mode you can select one of 3 opponents with the directional pad, you can't always select an opponent with the same rank but do so when one is available.

Alternate Mokujin Sounds

To hear different hit sounds for Mokujin, hold DOWN on the D-Pad or joystick before a match in which you are controlling him. Mokujin will now sound like a block of wood when damaged.

Arcade History Dip Switches

While at the Press Start screen for any of the Arcade History games, hold the select button and you will be given a list of dip switches. You can use these for such things as changing the number of rounds or unlocking hidden characters, such as Baek in Tekken 2.

Kill a Frog - Easter Egg

In the Secret Garden Stage, if you look closely at the ground somewhere you will notice there is a Frog. If you or your opponent gets knocked in the air and lands on the frog it will die and its angel will float upward.

As you beat Story Mode with each character the movies will become available in Theater Mode. Getting all movies requires you the beat Story Mode with both Kuma and Panda as well as Christie and Eddy.

Hidden Story Mode Interludes

Don't always be quick to defeat the Story Mode interlude opponents, in some cases when you lose you get to see a different movie as part of the story.
